IT'S OFFICIAL: 100 Follower Giveaway!!!


Everybody put your party hats on because it's time to celebrate a landmark here at The Files...100 Followers! Although my total at the moment is 100 AND ONE follower (welcome 101st follower and thank you for subscribing!), I haven't yet officially posted the giveaway so I'm still celebrating the 100 landmark. I've been talking about it for a while and I'm going to go ahead and do it as planned. To celebrate all my fellow polish-addicted, manicure-loving blog readers, I am going to select ONE lucky winner to receive all of the following six Color Club Holographic Hues polishes: Beyond, Eternal Beauty, Cosmic Fate, Kismet, Miss Bliss, and Over the Moon. They are absolutely gorgeous and I bought a second set after deciding I just couldn't part with the one I originally ordered. I'm doing this old school where I use excel because I don't even want to try and figure out how to use that crazy Rafflecopter service. No no, excel is where it's at! As with all good things, there are rules.
To earn EXTRA entries:
  • include in your comment or email one thing you'd like to see more on this blog (one extra entry)
  • ask me a question or tell me any suggestion you can think of for my blog (one extra entry) (two if I decide to do a post about it)
  • comment on any post from now until February 10th (one extra entry for each post comment)
  • blog about my giveaway (include a link in your comment or email so I can find it!) (five extra entries)
I will stop adding entries on February 13th at midnight so I have time to make sure I get all the entries into my excel sheet!
That's it guys! I'm so excited for this! Be sure to spread the word and let our fellow polish-hoarders know that there's an awesome (if I do say so myself) giveaway going on here at Nikki's Nail Files!! Wow, do I sound like a game show host? I feel like I sound like a game show host. "Contestant Number One come on down to collect your BRAND NEW CARRRRR!!" Just kidding.
Good luck dears!
And thank you so much for making my blog what is it!!

  7. Hey Nikki! Congrats on the 100+ followers, I just became number 103. I found you through the comment you left on Lacquer: The Best Medicine. My email addy is TGReads@gmail.com

    BLOG ABOUT GIVEAWAY:

    http://thatgirlreads.blogspot.com/2014/02/nikkis-nail-files-celebrates-with.html


    I'D LIKE TO SEE MORE OF:

    Personal posts about you, doesn't have to be a lot of them, but just enough to let readers get to know you better.


    A SUGGESTION FOR YOUR BLOG:

    How about some more color, or a fun background. As a nail polish blogger I don't think you can go wrong with something fresh or funky. It's just a little bland. (not trying to sound mean)

    QUESTION ABOUT YOU/YOUR BLOG:

    What got you into blogging about nail polish? How do you get your nail polish, is it self bought, won, given, provided by an indie polish maker for review?

    :)

    3. Just stopping back by to say hello!! Love your Olympics inspired nails, BTW!! Hope all is well with you and I am so excited that you like my suggestion about Dupes!! YAY!!

      Delete
  14. QUICK QUESTION/ SUGGESTION: Could you please maybe help me out by showing some affordable dupes of some more expensive polishes! This is one of my favorite things to check out on blogs!! I am in a tight spot right now,(due to my husbands heart attack he lost his job) . Just because I cannot buy expensive polishes doesn't mean that I cannot have gorgeous colors, though, right?I know there are tons of dupes out there but I live in a small town and our stores do not have much selection! Just a thought...thx!

    1. Hi Lindsey! You are all entered! I hope these become your first holos! Thank you for checking out my blog and I hope you keep stopping by and offering a thought or two about my designs! I'm sorry to hear about your husband. I will definitely look into dupes and such. I love bargain polishes as much as the more luxury ones (though I can't say I really own any of the "luxury" polishes!). I'll probably do a post on dupes now...so you get ANOTHER entry!

    1. Hey Amanda, welcome to my blog! I'm glad you checked it out and thank you for commenting and joining my giveaway :) I gave you 8 extra entries because your suggestion and question was awesome. I read your suggestion and I had to google what "sugar spun" nail art looked like. I now have seen it and it looks totally awesome so I will definitely be doing a post about it if I can get it right. How did I not know about that technique?! And this girl right here LOVES animal print (if you look back through my "The Real Files" tab under my header you'll see all the random zebra and animal print nail arts I've done) so I'll definitely be doing more posts with animal print! And I was going to answer your question here but then my answer got so long I decided I'll just a post about it! So many great post ideas. Thank you! Good luck in my giveaway!
